Although I see eagles whenever and wherever I can, the most reliable place for me to see and photograph eagles is Lock and Dam 18 near Burlington, Iowa in January and February. So that's what I did this week. I made it to #19 in Keokuk also and there are a few eagles there, but for hundreds and hundreds, #18 is the place to go. See the report and photos.
Photography web sites and the blog that binds them. If Blogspot is not loading images, just click on the link and you will see the image on my site.

2007 Photo of the Year
It's time again for Photo fo the Year. As usual, I'm the only one allowed to enter and the prize is an all-expense paid trip to Keokuk, Iowa to chase eagles, which I will be doing next week.
So it's probably not much of a stretch to select an image from last year's eagle trip as the 2007 POY.
Here are my POY selections for 2002-2006.
Up until August of last year my expeditions could be neatly defined. Every few months I would fly somewhere, rent a car, shoot some photos, and do a little writeup. But now I can get in the car and drive around a large area for several weeks, snapping along the way. I wasn't sure how to present the results in a logical form.
With that in mind I finally decided just to call it Autumn 2007, which includes images from old favorites Bosque del Apache NWR in New Mexico and Squaw Creek NWR in Missouri, as well as a few from a park a few miles from my house.
If the weather holds, next week I'll drive east to the Mississippi River to see how thick the eagles are around Lock and Dam 17.
